We are expanding. Literally. And figuratively. Our family and our horizons. We want to share our experiences along the way and preserve the memories. Watch us grow, hopefully in more ways than one.

Snow in St. Louis
This is the view from my hotel:
The Cardinals' stadium. Yes I am in St. Louis, a place I did call home for a brief time. Not feeling so homey this time around... I have already been here for like, 4 days. I will be here for another 5 days. Maybe even 6 or 7. I am working. Real lawyering, actually, for what feels like 16 hours a day. Trial starts on Monday and from now until it is over, I'm just going to focus on each task at hand, each hour, each day.
Before I know it, it will be over and time to get home to my sweet puppy and husband. I haven't been away from Blake for this long since before we were married and I really miss him. I'm afraid Toby is going to forget who I am. Sprout is keeping me good company, though, as active as always, and I keep telling myself that I'm not alone at all. According to the apps on my phone, I've got 106 days to go. Sprout weighs over 20 oz and is over a foot long head to toe. Hard to imagine that all that fits in this bump that still seems small.
I'm realizing two things now as I write this post. (1) I've not shared any info about our ultrasound appointment via blog. I need to do that. I will do it. No promises on when! (2) I need to get back to work.
So, if for the next week, I ignore you, don't respond to email, text, or Facebook message - I apologize. Sprout and I say "hello" from room 2030 and I'll get back to you when it's all over.
